Subject: Carousel Was Superb!
Wow! RR Hour did Carousel in half an hour. Gordon MacRae sand that role in the movie. Sound was perfect. I recall hearing this show when it was broadcast on the weekend. So now onto more RR Hour. Thanks Archive! You get me through the night.

Subject: Apple Blossoms
The Apple Blossoms broadcast from 4/18/49 is not a complete file. It cuts out in the middle of one of Jeanette MacDonald's songs.

Subject: Whole Directory Zip File
Unfortunately, the zip file containing the whole directory is damaged and won't unzip. Shame too - because these are unusually great light opera programs. There are a lot of files to download individually but if you're a fan of this music and the historic artists, it's worth it!

Subject: Error found in set
http://www.archive.org/download/TheRailroadHour/RH_49-01-24_ep017-Blossom_Time.mp3 is not from the Railroad Hour at all...but an undated show from the series Showtime...

Subject: Top quality entertainment
I have to say that the Railroad Hour is top quality entertainment. I'm particularly impressed by the standard of each presentation. As good as any musical. Lots of songs, great characterization and each show is great to listen to time and time again. My favourite is 'Music in the air' with Jane Powell and Gordon MacRea. The storyline has exactly the right mix of happiness, sadness, and of course romance! The sound quality is superb. I can't praise these fantastic shows enough.
